The official Mutants & Masterminds boards
An interesting approach. And not a bad one.
My only difficulty is that the current Green Knight, in my world, John Bernlad, descendant of the original, operates out of Portland Oregon and is a co-founder of the Vanguard.
Perhaps the Shield of Britain takes oath to the monarch or the Isles themselves in the presence of Wynebgwrthucher, the shield of Arthur, which holds their oaths.
I would not include Ireland.

I'm creating a Irish/British/Gaelic/Whatever build also, but I don't know much about the source material for one thing, and another, I can't think of appropriate powers for the build. A third problem is that my creative juices are GONE! AGAIN! Though, I suppose you can't help me with the last thing, could you help me with the other problems?
Y'see, the character I'm making is supposed to be a crow-themed herald/champion of the Morrigan, and you probably know who she is, so I need more information on her then her Wiki page can give me. I'm intending for the champion to be a hero, trying to help people, but ultimately serving only the Morrigan. In my world, the Morrigan fell from goddesshood a while ago, from lack of belief, and she needs to come back to godesshood, because she is the only one who can foretell the destinties and/or dooms of many important characters in my setting. Again, could you give me more info on the "true" mythlogical Morrigan?
Also, I know she's crow and doom themed, but what kind of Powers would that entail?
Thanks in advance, Jack! You can ignore me if you don't have time. Again, Awesome builds!

Well, this is going to be in the modern age, and by this time the Morrigan has lost most of her power, barely enough to gift her champion, (Who is PL: 9 rather then 10 to reflect this,) and so he/she's probably going to have not too many powers.
Perhaps the character she gifts her powers to is the descendant of Cuchulain, and thats the only reason the Morrigan can give her powers to the PC, otherwise, they'd just fizzle out or somesuch? Or is that too wonky?
The champion might, in one of the storylines, gather soldiers for Morrigan, so he/she will probably not be one of the ones wearing the paint.
Of course, the champion will most likely have the Luck Control and Morph/Alternate Form- Raven, and the spear sounds like a good weapon to use. Perhaps a spear that requires something to do with blood?
Oh, and could you do a sample build for the Herald/Champion? That would really help my efforts to stat him/her (probably a her) up.
Thanks again Jack, and in the future, I'll be sure to comment on your builds more.
Edit: I'd imagine several of the Fianna absolutely refusing to swear an oath to anything British, even if they are apolitical enough to be protectors of Northern Ireland as well. Shamrock, Cuchulain, and Scathach might swear, but Finn wouldn't. Hard to say what Silverhand would do. Bastard won't swear anything to anybody, because he'd be bound for eternity. Heck, several people I have associated with the Shield as it stands wouldn't take the oath, because it would bind them *forever*.
